Power of the Suggestive

The power of the suggestive is much greater than
the statement of reality.

Life’s Moments and Eternal Youth

Every minute of life carries with it its miraculous value,
and its face of eternal youth.

Our First and Last Love

In the light, the earth remains our first and our last love. Our brothers and sisters are breathing under the same sky as we; justice is a living thing. Now is born that strange joy which helps one live and die, and which we shall never again postpone to a later time.
Albert Camus, The Rebel

All the World Will Be in Love with Night

Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night,
Give me my Romeo. And when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

April 23 traditionally marks William Shakespeare’s birthday, so a belated greeting in memory of the Bard.   From Romeo and Juliet, one of my favorite passages.
